The property has in total 3 reception rooms to include a living room, dining room and family room, 7 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. It has spacious hall ways and landings and large cellars.

Location - Newport Pagnell - The town was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Neuport, Old English for "New Market Town", but by that time the old Anglo-Saxon town was dominated by the Norman invaders. The suffix "Pagnell" came later when the manor passed into the hands of the Pagnell (Paynel) family. It was the principal town of the Three Hundreds of Newport, a district that had almost the same boundary as the modern Borough. The area is well served with local schooling, leisure facilities including a swimming pool, shops, pubs and restaurants. Further amenities can be found in Central Milton Keynes, which is a short drive away. Central Milton Keynes and nearby Wolverton both offer links into London Euston. CMK offers direct links with journey times of approximately 40 minutes.
